New Holland Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: Berliner Weisse

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.90%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Incorrigible celebrates the beauty of mischief. Wild yeasts and bacteria run free in our sour-aging cellar, the House of Funk, creating vibrant sour and acidic character in this delicate, yet complex wheat beer. The refreshingly tart session beer will tease your palate with a subtle, layered nuance.

Poured from 22oz bottle into glass. Stamped on bottle is bottling date of '08/30/17 10:04'.
Pale gold colored body, cloudy. Fizzy head dissipates to just a partial cap fed by bubbles. No lacing.
Tart, lemon aroma. Barnyard funk also.
Taste is more tart than sour, but some sourness is there too. Has definite green apple, pear and lemon aspects. Slight white wine vinous.
Not really dry enough to encourage rapid sipping. This is not a nuanced sour, with multiple layers than appear within the taste profile.
More toward a medium mouth feel, with the tart aspects dominant.
This would be best on a warmer spring day, or when paired with spicy cheese, fruit, and charcuterie board.

Good and especially great for the price, but lots of vinegar to the taste. Not much fruit, acedic body and moderate carbonation.

A decent sour worth checking out...hard to find a $5 bomber of a sour out there.

Look: Pale gold. Not much head, but that's probably due to a lazy pour on my part.

Smell: Apple cider vinegar, without much of anything else sticking out. Perhaps there's a slight crackery malt hiding in the background, but it's very subdued.

Taste: Vinegary tang overlaying a flavor that falls between champagne and a dry cider. I wasn't a fan at first, but this is my first sour, and as I sip it gets more and more enjoyable. For those of you who've never had a sour before, I will warn that this doesn't evoke any of the "typical" flavors of beer one might expect. No malt, no hops, but that's not a bad thing. The label doesn't indicate the presence of any fruit, but there's a green apple element going on here.

Feel: Strong, tingly carbonation which complements the tangy flavor quite well. A medium-light body and zero alcohol warming makes this quite drinkable.

Overall: I was sure I hated this upon taking my first sip, but by the end of the bottle I was sad it was gone. Other reviews here seem to suggest that this is a pretty mediocre sour compared to others, but for a first-timer with no frame of reference it makes for quite a satisfying, unique experience. It's not something I'd buy regularly, but it would make a nice alternative to champagne for a special occasion. Recommended? Absolutely.

no date on the bottle, but i've been holding it since 2014. chardonnay look in the glass with a little white fuzz (fizz) around the edges. earthy and tart on the nose and the tongue. definitely sour! didnt lose anything in the two years it sat in my cellar but then i dont have a fresh one to compare it to....
